Movie Info

For rookie Sergeant Lee, being a cop means running down crooks and upholding the law. Injured in a shoot-out, he finds out to his horror that he is reassigned to the dubious-sounding Miscellaneous Affairs Department (MAD).

Audience Reviews for Rule Number One (Rule #1)

  • Jan 04, 2009
    First of, this is a ghost story originating out of Hong Kong...proving once again the best asian horror comes out of Japan or South Korea. Ekin is a fine talent but miscast in this movie. Shawn is eye candy but his screen presence is not even close to Nicholas Tse. Second, the story and pacing is uneven. It seems needless drama is focused on the spirts coming out of the alcohol bottle rather than those causing the deaths/suicides. There are those gotcha quick scares, and some of the sound effects do a nice job in creating an eerie atmosphere early in the movie. Unfortunately, the storyline staggers all over the place and leaves the viewer more frustrated than scared. In the final thirty minutes, the movie spins in a different direction, borrowing heavily from the US release "Fallen", where the spirit jumps from body to body to do its evil deeds. To top it off..in the end sequence there is a flashback scene which turns the movie on its head, leaving most viewers mightily baffled =/ . Rule #1---> stick to a clear theme and don't outsmart yourself with the twists..you cheat the audience ultimately!
